    @oldschool83 I think you are picking and choosing which stat to give relevance to and which are flukey. If the obp is flukey because of hbp then can we also say the low avg is flukey because of a low babip (.043 lower this year compared to his career numbers).
    Or it can be weak contact too. Plus the eye test says choo doesn't see the ball all too well against lefties. Either way, choo is a far superior player against right handed pitching.

    But back to votto. Yes it's frustrating to see him take marginal pitches, but you can't argue with the guys OBP. Let's get a guy that can create more hittable pitches in front of him (Hamilton) and a guy that can instantly make the other team pay for walking him. (Bruce) but preferably a right handed guy to have three solid bats in a row.
